poem 263-2/365:2014

a universe in my mouth

with thirty clashing planets

at war with each other

because they can’t agree—theologically

in fact had wisdom teeth removed

they said the voice that comes

from the void is the one and true god

—they pulled all four for faulty reasoning

the universe in my mouth

is young and timeless
